Wyming Brook, CAZ Data: Latest 12-16 Sept 23
The new weekly round up for paying subscribers. Full what's on out there guide & news - Wyming Brook closures, has the CAZ done its job? And can we still buy Bolehill Wood for the city?
Welcome, wonderful subscribers - first update for the week below, with news of Wyming Brook closures for a few months, and a heads up for next Saturday’s Greno Woods mountain cycling fun.
I’m trialling this new edition (with short incoming news and features) and a fuller what’s on service. And I hope it’ll encourage more folk to sign up. Nudge.
This week I’ve got more on the data I dug out from the government for the key Clean Air Zone pollutant, nitrogen oxides. I think it shows reductions in NOX (linked to lung disease, heart disease and premature deaths) both in the city centre (25% down since last summer) and well outside the CAZ, in Pitsmoor (9% down).
I’ve also got a little more on the strange saga of old Bolehill Wood and why anyone would want to build there, and lots more Walking Festival events.
I’ll be updating this post during the week, so come back as you wish - even better download the free Substack app which comes with no strings attached, it just makes everything easier to read, whenever you want to read it. (The app updates posts automatically so you avoid my usual Sunday morning typos, and even better it allows you to unclog your email inbox.)
If you’re not a full subscriber yet, the button is down there if you want to read the whole post. (You know the score, support local journalism, help me pay the bills, it’s only £4 a month, or less if you take out an annual subscription.) Any problems subscribing, I’m at email@example.com.
Subscribe below. Payment is via the secure Stripe system, with 2 factor authentication, and if there’s a major loss of service (e.g. I break my typing hands), I’m pretty sure Substack can sort out a refund or pause. Thanks.
